Hi all,


I have a Belkin G MIMO wireless router, i setted up a wireless network using the wizard on the Home computer. Then i plugged in the usb dongle onto my other pc and setted up a wireless network making sure my network name was the same as the Home computer. The internet worked and i could transfer files easy. Now when i try to access my Home pc from my other pc it says i have no permission, but when i turn off the firewall on the Home pc i can access it.

You obviously need to configure the trusted zone for that firewall to allow file sharing to function.

Re: File sharing on XP has stopped working

Without knowing what firewall you use, that would be difficult to answer. Since it works without the firewall, it's obvious that's the issue here.

Re: File sharing on XP has stopped working

Both firewalls already had this enabled, my home pc picks up my other pc, but my other pc doesnt show the home pc unless i turn off the firewall on the home. However, when i turn off the firewall on my other pc i still cant access it from my home one. I have started all the services you mentioned in another thread, i can ping both IPs successfully.

Re: File sharing on XP has stopped working

Well, let's try a stack repair, perhaps something corrupted.

TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Windows XP with SP2.

Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ip reset reset.log

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

Reboot the machine.

Re: File sharing on XP has stopped working

Im sorry for not replying for ages. I have done both commands on both computers and restarted. But now when i try to view computers on my network it only comes up with the name of the computer your logged on with. And when i try to create a new wireless network using the wizard, when i choose to setup manually an error message pops up saying i havn't got the right software!!!

Start, Run, devmgmt.msc

Under Network adapters, please tell me all the devices listed. Also, are there any devices anywhere in the Device Manager display with yellow ? or ! displayed?

Re: File sharing on XP has stopped working

Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

Re: File sharing on XP has stopped working

Create a file in notepad named FIXANON.REG with the following contents:

You should have 3 boxes on the bottom in NOTEPAD.
1)Filename : FIXANON.REG
2)Save as type: all files
3)Encoding: ANSI
If you do not change it from txt type to All files type, then the file will actually be FIXANON.REG.txt, this won't accomplish the desired result.

------------------- Use text after this line -------------------
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa]
"restrictanonymous"=dword:00000000
------------------- Use text before this line -----------------

Double click on the file and say Yes to the merge into registry question.

Reboot the computer.

"Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa]
"restrictanonymous"=dword:00000000"

Do i type this in the notepad and save and run it?

Cut and paste the EXACT stuff between the dashed lines into NOTEPAD and save them as a .REG file as described. I thought the instructions were very explicit.

It won't hurt to do it on both systems.

Re: File sharing on XP has stopped working

UPDATE:


I added the reg files on both comps. I restored factory settings to my wireless router and added my WPA security again (both computers can still connect to the internet on the same connection). I then used the "setup wireless network wizard" on both computers and made sure all my settings match the routers settings. I then added both comps to the same workgroup name. Now on both computers when i click on "view workgroup computers" both computers show up on either computers but when you click on the opposing computer one says "access denied" and the other "can't find the network path".

Both firewalls have printer and file sharing checked.
